Vertical Drop Heroes HD is launching on the Xbox One, PS4 and PS Vita this month. It will release on the PS4 and PS Vita on February 14 (North America) and February 15 (EU). It will be available for $6.99/€6.99 and will be a cross buy title.

Vertical Drop Heroes is a procedural platformer RPG hybrid with roguelike elements, where your hero adventures through randomly generated stages. Armed with a variety of skills and traits, you must use your cunning and reflexes to survive the dangers of each stage, until you face the final boss and uncover the truth behind the game.
Some of the key features include:
Randomly generated stages, enemies and bosses, resulting in a very replayable game
Artwork, coding and animation done by one person, Nerdook, in his unique style
Split screen, local co-op
Destructible terrain and multiple uses for each skill gives you plenty of options to approach the different situations generated
Tons of skills, abilities, traits and powers that you can unlock in the game, creating a different hero each time
Unique combat system where proper planning is more important than quick reflexes
Persistent upgrades allow you to carry forward progress between games, with a choice between increasingly expensive persistent upgrades or generally cheaper temporary upgrades
Every enemy and boss has been designed to provide challenge and variety
This is a HD remake for Vertical Drop Heroes, the original webgame with over 2 million plays created by Nerdook -- a one-man developer with a portfolio of games that has accumulated more than 50 million plays worldwide. Bigger and better in every way, Vertical Drop Heroes HD revamps the entire game into an epic, randomly generated platformer RPG.
